Forum: prelinger Subject: Another attempt with Prelinger Material

Here's another attempt (my 1st) with Prelinger material. This is over at Open Source Movies. Also a few Edison clip in it. A little After Effects and an animated Credit Reader (AI and Crazy Talk).

No To Sex Ed

http://www.archive.org/movies/details-db.php?collection=opensource_movies&collectionid=No_To_Sex_Ed

Any review (at Open Source) of aformentioned attempt would be appreciated. Don't worry I'm an old guy, I can take it.

Stay tuned for "The Big Chase", animated characters (the credit reader in No To Sex Ed)on top of parts of the video "Journey Through a Day".

PS, the website mention in the movie isn't up yet, coming soon.

Please upload alternative formats for your movie. WMV is a litle restrictive. Why don't you upload it as a Divx or Xvid. That way peopel can more easly play it.

Actually if you upload mpeg1 or mpeg2, the fine people of the archive can make derivative versions in various formats, and everyone's happy!

I'd never done an mpeg1 or 2 before, but I downloaded a trial demo converter and made an mpeg1. But trying to get it added to Open Source Movies can be a little tricky, see below.

I just read a forum entry on my problem, trying to update a movie with a different version of an already uploaded (online) file.
Forum response, "What we'd recommend is that you upload a fresh version of the item, with both versions of the movies included, and then file an error report on the original version asking for it to be removed.
An addendum to my original post - make sure you upload the new version of the movie using a different directory name, otherwise confusion and hilarity will ensue! Simon. "

So I did the above suggestion, and uploaded 2 versions of No TO Sex Ed2, wmv and mpeg1. I'll file the error report, and hopefully the two versions will be up sometime soon. Thanks for the suggestion. MJC

Yes, I was in exactly your situation, and I can vouch that you're doing the right thing. It will take a little while for your old one to disappear, but in the end you'll be glad you did it.
May I suggest that while the two versions are up, you might want to add a note to the description in the first one, letting people know that additional formats are available, and pointing them to the new one.
Anyway, the point is, you're doing it right!

Last post on this subject. No To Sex Ed 2 replaces No To Sex Ed, with three choices of compression to download; MPEG1, MPEG2_256kb, and wmv. Thanks all.

Uh-oh...all the new versions seem to have the audio at half speed.
Don't worry, it took me a while to figure this stuff out too...

When I downloaded them this morning, only the MPEG4 is at half speed sound. The MPEG1 and wmv work on my machine soundwise. ?????
